Globecomm Unveils Low-Cost LTE Hosted Network Solutions at CTIA Wireless 2012

Affordable LTE core and radio network demonstrated for carriers

Globecomm Systems Inc. (NASDAQ: GCOM), a leading global provider of communications solutions and services, announced today that it will launch a time and cost-saving 4G solution for carriers at CTIA 2012. The company will host a live end-to-end demonstration of the solution at the Globecomm Booth (#2860).

The 4G hosted switching solution significantly reduces the requisite time, money and manpower to initiate or convert to a 4G business, enabling operators to more easily create LTE networks and deploy Voice over LTE and other IMS related services.

Globecomm’s hosted 4G solution provides a unique, affordable converged packet gateway solution that resides in the operator’s home market and breaks out IP traffic to the local Internet Service Provider (ISP) of their choice, which is often the operator itself.

This solution allows carriers to limit the use of expensive transport to the core network and maximize profitability of the service, without compromising network security, control, visibility or reliability. Globecomm can also help even the smallest operator launch advanced LTE services by providing network and RF planning, UE user devices, eNodeB radio gear, backhaul solutions, converged packet gateway, LTE core, NOC and network management tools, as well as the expertise to break out Internet traffic, deep packet inspection technology, billing, security, and regulatory compliance and systems support. Globecomm’s cost-effective solution gives carriers more options to develop flexible network and product offers and gain greater control over their own 4G wireless futures.

Globecomm is a full-service GSM/ CDMA/UMTS/LTE mobile technology and wireless technology provider, offering 2G/3G/4G services and products – including voice, high speed Internet, SMS, MMS, voicemail, prepaid and post-paid billing – and a forward path to the next generation. The Company specializes in solving the operational and business problems of serving low-density and remote areas, deploying advanced services on legacy cellular networks, restoring service and providing secured communications on short notice.

Andrew Silberstein, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Globecomm Services, said: “LTE network technology is rapidly advancing to meet exploding data demand and introduce new data applications, yet smaller operators are often stuck upfront making risky investment decisions with specific vendors and face years of expensive upgrades and support costs. The capabilities made possible by our hosted switching solution solve cost and risk problems and open new markets for our customers while helping them rapidly expand their networks and drive new revenue generating services to their customers.”
